Kirk Cousins and Washington thwarted what would have been a second straight late game-winning drive by Russell Wilson to grab a win in Seattle this afternoon. Despite leading for almost all of the second half, they found themselves suddenly staring down a a 14-10 deficit with a minute and a half to play after Wilson connected with Doug Baldwin for a late score. But Washington’s offense put together a comeback that only took four plays and 35 seconds.
The play of the game came on that clinching drive, when Cousins lobbed a ball up for Josh Doctson, who dove to make a spectacular 38-yard catch and slid all the way inside the one, setting up what would be the game-winning Rob Kelley TD run.
A final drive by Seattle stalled out at midfield with a failed Hail Mary, and Washington left Seattle with a 17-14 victory. Cousins’s heroics snapped the Seahawks’ four-game winning streak, while raising Washington back to an even 4-4.
